Reflections of a new day as we journey to the dawning of discovery
brings forth the challenges of today. Now is the time for us to stretch out
and take the wings of knowledge, to spread our horizons for tomorrow may
be too late. The journey is long; the road is weary and the reward awaits;
for today is the beginning of a magnificent dream called yesterday's tomor-
As we pass through the halls of academia, our reflections on success and
the assessments of self combine to make our thoughts reality. Reflections of
responsibility ... the need to be, to do, to have. Reflections of opportunity
... the chance to express, to learn, to solve. Reflections of ability ... the
capacity to envision, to change, to grow. Indeed we reflect without as well
In reflecting we project our thoughts, our imaginations. We create our
own universe -ourselves. The web we weave becomes a self-imposed pris-
on of assumption and as such we must realize that it is ours to control.
Unerringly youth beguiles the uninitiated for lack of experience. With
experience comes opportunity; with opportunity, responsibility; with responsi-
bility, expectation and with expectation, hope.
We present this yearbook to you in hopes for tomorrow and in the future
that the dreams you dream and the reflections of your yesteryears combine
to make each day a truly memorable experience.

The 1983 homecoming celebration holds
a unique and significant place in the
memories of all CSU students, faculty, and
alumni because for the first time our own
CSU cougars held the prestigious honor of
being the number one ranked basketball
team in the NAIA. Furthermore, not only
did we win the homecoming game by a
score of 91-88, but we also proved our
rightful ownership to the coveted title of
being number one. The Hawks played a
spectacular game, but the Cougars came
to win and did!
Some of the activities included the fashion
show where some CSU students put their
best foot forward with some of the fashions
of the 80's. The talent show, yet another
outstanding event, was also featured. Some
of CSU's most talented students came forth
and showed fellow students, faculty, and
others the best talent around. Homecoming
week was ended by a dance where CSU
students and others came to have a good
time and let their hair down.
Ping-pong demands concentration, and a dash of "English", of course.

Having a Ball at the Top!
Looking to the future . . .
that's exactly what Chicago
State University's head Basket-
ball Coach Bob Hallberg is
keeping in mind while prepar-
ing for the upcoming 1982-83
collegiate basketball season. In
defining the term ''future" as
far as the CSU Cougar basket-
ball team is concerned, many
factors come into play, such as
the University's recent
commitment to working
towards an NCAA Division I
status for the entire athletic
program which will be effective
as of September 1, 1984.
The new athletic season,
therefore, will mark the start of
a two-year transitional period
where the CSU Men's Basket-
ball Team (as well as all other
CSU athletic programs), under
Hallberg's guidance will be up-
grading the caliber of competi-
tion they will play and also the
talent of the entire team.
Coming off a winning 17-13
1981-82 season mark, the CSU
Cougars anxiously anticipated
the 28-game schedule which in-
cludes NCAA Division I oppo-
nents from Western Illinois Uni-
versity, Illinois State University,
the University of South Ala-
bama, Iowa State University
and three-time NCAA Division
III National Champions from
North Park College. Last sea-
son, they seemed to have their
suitcases perpetually packed as
they travelled for 18 games
and stayed home for nine -all
of which the Cougars won.
Talentwise, Hallberg is confi-
dent that they've got what it
takes to win. "Last year's five
starters collectively averaged
12.3 points per game (all ex-
cept one in double figures) and
we hope to be able to main-
tain that type of balanced at-
tack this year. As in the past,
we will continue to stress and
further develop the team
concept of play," explained
Coach Bob Hallberg
he Chicago State University
i/omen's basketball season
iromises to be one of the
xcitement as well as improve-
lent for the Cougars. This
ear's squad will be working to-
ether as a unit during every
base of the game. "I'm very
roud of all the great
ontnbutions each team member
as already made," stated
loach Schefkowitz. ~'We are
ptimistic about the quality of
ur basketball team. This year's
?am possesses the qualities of
ride, enthusiasm, desire and tai-
nt," continued Schefkowitz.
■s far as team personnel is con-
erned, the Cougars will be hol-
ered by the return of six vet-
rans, four of which are starters,
wading the returning veterans is

ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE!
According to Chicago State University's head Men's
Tennis Coach Gary Sailes, this year's Men's Tennis
team is the strongest tennis squad the University has
been in 10 years. They will play a very ambitious
schedule which includes 29 matches, three of them
against NCAA Division I institutions. They will also par-
ticipate in both the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic
Conference (CCAC) and the NAIA District 20 Tourna-
Coach Sailes has had a highly successful recruiting
year and was fortunate in getting key transfer student
Mel Phillips from Southern Illinois University-
Edwardsville where he was a member of the men's
tennis squad that won the NCAA Division II title four
times during the last six years.
The CSU Men's Tennis team has something that
was previously lacking in past seasons, that is depth.
"1 predict that we will do well this season. We are
looking forward to winning our conference CCAC
tournament in May and one or two places in the
NAIA Distnct 20 Tournament," stated Coach Sailes.
This year's tennis squad promises to be even stron-
ger according to Coach Sailes. He still is keeping his
eyes peeled for quality players. There are also high
school hopefuls in the wings who have expressed an
interest in attending CSU.
Last year the Cougars accumulated a respectable 16-17-
1 record amidst an extremely tough and competitive
schedule. This season they hope to improve their dual
meet and tournament records while participating in the
National Association for Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) for
the first time.
Highlights of the 1982-83 season includes three tough
tournaments, namely the University of Wisconsin-Parkside
Ranger Tournament, and the Moraine Valley Tournament.
Chicago State hosts its own fourth Annual Cougar
Invitational with the following teams scheduled to partici-
pate: College of DuPage, Rosary College, Trinity College,
North Park College, Moody Bible College and the Illinois
Institute of Technology.
As far as team personnel is concerned. Coach Raymond
and Assistant Coach Duggan are highly optimistic. Among
the returning veterans are junior Laura Kelly, from Mother
of Sorrows High School, a strong hitter and middleblocker
and junior Donna Staisiunas, from Maria High School, a
fine off-side hitter and good blocker. Sophomore Jane
Wolf from Mother McAuley High School will head the 6-0
attack as setter. This highly qualified nucleus will form the
basis on which Coach Raymond hopes to build a tough
squad. They should guide the squad through a rough sea-
son. The CSU Volleyball Cougars are a fairly young squad,
with only three returning veterans and nine recruits.

Ruth Love Speaks Out
Dr. Ruth B. Love, general superintendent of the Chicago public schools, de-
livered the lanuary commencement address to CSU graduates during the 307th
In a challenge to Chicagoans to help public school children. Dr. Love an-
nounced the launching of the Chicago Education Corps, the system's
comprehensive volunteer program.
"Anyone who has a desire to voluntarily contribute to the exciting task of
renewing public education in our city will be enlisted," said Dr. Love.
Ruth Love, a native of California, was appointed to the position of general
superintendent of the Chicago schools in 1981, after serving as superintendent
of the Oakland Unified School District in California for six years.
During her address. Dr. Love stressed to the graduates the importance of
backing public education, saying that America continues to be a strong nation
because of it and not in spite of it.
"It was our system of public education that allowed us to reach unimagined
heights as an industrial giant, made us a leader in space technology, and gives
us the impetus and know-how required to compete in the complex communi-
cations and computer revolutions," she said.
Dr. Love appealed to the graduates to become involved in the new volun-
teer program and use their degrees to "uplift the spirits and physical conditions
of all humankind."

YEARBOOKS IMPROVE WITH
Mark Thomas, copy editor
Another year has come and gone, and yet the memory lingers on as
experience often does. Nothing can take the place of a memory, since
memory is a part of experience and experience is always irreplacable, al-
beit, not always profound. My experience during this past year has been
to serve, enhance and develop an essential part of this university's heri-
tage-its yearbook. This book will, I hope, become something of special
value in the years to come for someone. A yearbook should be more
than just a record of the previous year. The end of 1982 and the first
portion of 1983 has been a pivotal period in my life because of spiritual,
material and personal developments. Consequently it is my hope that
this yearbook will somehow hold the same amount of significance for all
of its readers since together we have overcome so many burdens, ob-
stacles and adversities.
In closing, I am always pleased to identify just some of the individuals
who have helped shape, direct and otherwise influence my efforts in
this achievement. First and foremost, thanks be to God who makes all
things possible, then to my wife who graciousness inspires me to greater
heights. I am also grateful to Mr. Robert Hauwiller for his support and
guidance. Last, but not least, I am indebted to my first mentor and very
good friend, Mr. Ulysses Chambers and to all those who helped in so
many ways to bring this book to completion through their support and
hard work -namely President George Ayers, Provost William Sutton,
Dean Barbara Henley, Terri Gibbs, Marcia Best, Gail Cannon, the
yearbook staff and so many others. I thank all of you for your support
